PHILADELPHIA (WPVI) -- They call it the target effect and if you shop there, you know what that means.
You walk in for two things and leave with a cart full of stuff you suddenly just had to buy.
GOBanking rates rounded up some ways to save at Target.
And just when the faithful thought they knew it all - some of these hacks might surprise you.
First, shop early in the week for your greatest chance to getting popular items on sale.
Also, don't forget about price adjustments. If you buy a few things at Target and then they suddenly go on sale - save those receipts! You have 14 days to get refunded the difference.
If you see a better price at another store, check with customer service for a price adjustment.
And here's something you may not know: that rule also applies to online retailers like Amazon!
